Prince Hubertus of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (24 August 1909 – 26 November 1943) was a member of the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, the second eldest son of Charles Edward, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and his wife, Princess Victoria Adelaide of Schleswig-Holstein.
Prince Hubertus was born at Reinhardsbrunn Castle, Germany. His father, Charles Edward, was the reigning Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, the only son of Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany, and a grandson of Queen Victoria. Edward was declared a "traitor peer" after fighting for Germany in WW I and stripped of his peerage.
His sister, Princess Sibylla of Sweden, gave her son, the future King Carl XVI Gustaf, the name Hubertus in memory of her brother. Later, his son Prince Carl Philip of Sweden gave his son Prince Alexander the name Hubertus.
